DISCUSSION: (27 pt)- General Discussion (9 pts), 9 questions (2pt each) = (18 pts) The experiment was designed to use ArgusLab to generate molecular orbital information for diatomic molecules and hydrochloric acid, including orbital energies and number of electrons in each orbital, and to provide pictorial representation of different molecular orbitals for diatomic molecules and hydrochloric acid as well 1 . For the experiment, ArgusLab was used to generate the diatomic molecules for oxygen, nitrogen, and fluorine and the molecule for hydrochloric acid. Once the geometry was optimized and the quantum mechanical equation solved, using the Schrodinger equation, the energies for each molecular orbital for each molecule were calculated along with the number of electrons in each...
